The most favorable interpretation I can make of Chris, at this point, is that he's playing a character. That's not even a very favorable one, though, since it's not a very entertaining character.

Smell that coffee….

"No, "Mr. Bean" is a made up character…"

Of course, you could always check "Linkedin" or "Who's Who" to be sure… That and $3.98 will get you a latté at Starbucks.

Who hasn't heard of Mr. Bean?

Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 8:50pm

"Mr Bean - He's the one who can afford the McLaren F1 ?"

No, "Mr. Bean" is a made up character...

Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 8:38pm

Check his Facebook page, he has his "homepage" listed, …it's a scam too.

Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 8:31pm

This is like a cross between Mr. Bean, Mr. McGoo and Mr. Icke.

Interesting, but a fleeting interest.

"combing through the entire discussion history of Atheist Singles and Secular Sexuality."

Easy to get sidetracked in there as well...

"Please, don't feed the trolls" also comes to mind, often mistaken as name calling, unless one considers that the verb form of "troll" is implied, which it is.

While engaging does have some positive spin-offs. It would be nice to be able to selectively "Kill-File" by user, for all related feeds and alerts.

I can deduce the likely discussion subject and recipient of the term, but I can't remember the term itself, at this point, without combing through the entire discussion history of Atheist Singles and Secular Sexuality.
Comment by Richard ∑wald on April 14, 2012 at 6:08pm

"what is that term you once used to suggest we ignore a person"

The old usenet term is kill-file.

Ahhh… usenet. I like what Gene "Spaff" Spafford said about usenet:

Usenet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind-boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it. ~ 1992

Some things never change.
